Meghan Markle attended along with other members of the royal family, Christmas day service earlier today in Sandringham. This is Meghan’s second year attending the service and first being there as an official member of the royal family. For the occasion, she wore a navy dress, coat, and matching feathered fascinator, as she linked arms with Prince Harry.
Upon leaving the church Meghan was caught talking and hugging a young girl. Her name is Jessica Scarlett and turns out the be an old friend of Meghan’s. Jessica held up a small sign with her Instagram username on it to attract the Duchess’ attention as the pair have interacted on social media.
Jessica said: “I started watching Suits, then I started following her on social media and then followed her acting and followed her humanitarian work, so I’ve been a fan of her for years. There was a group of us girls on social media she became kind of close with and interacted a lot online.”
Ever since then a lot has happened in Meghan’s life and she had to close her social media account before marrying Prince Harry. “This is the first time I’ve met her, she just said ‘it’s so lovely to meet you, incredible to finally see you’ and she was asking how we all are and if we’re still talking and supporting each other,” said Jessica.
This Christmas is particularly a significant one for Meghan and Harry, not only is it their first being husband and wife but it is also their last as a family of two before Baby Sussex comes along next year.
